Faith: An Ongoing Discovery

So, I have finally wrapped up this study on Global Christology. I’ve referenced this class nearly every week lately, so clearly the material was meaningful. In each course I’ve had the opportunity to take, I have been able to apply what we were studying to real life, which gives me the blessing to more fully step back and see how God weaves in and out of life moments, connecting life experiences.

It was a timely conclusion to our course – pondering who Christ is for humanity as we engage in the season of Advent and Christmas. Continue reading

Asking the Easy Questions

One week ago, Sunday morning… It was cold and dreary outside. I woke up extremely stressed about the things I hoped to complete that day. (So much for that day of rest.) The to do list continued to swim in my head; an impossible puzzle of tasks in a short span of time. My logical self couldn’t make sense of it! Continue reading

He’s posed some deep, thought-provoking questions lately; questions which demand reflection and honesty.

Seeing God

My 4-year-old daughter sat quietly in the back seat as we drove home from daycare one afternoon. Then suddenly, she turned towards me and asked, “Mommy, why can’t we see God?”

Making the most of my procrastination

I am yet again stuck on a Sunday morning with nothing started on today’s post. I’ve done this to myself a lot lately – and it is not normally how I operate! I prefer to thoroughly plan, develop and execute tasks. I would not save homework for the last minute, I was rarely forced to cram for tests. So why do I continue to put my weekly writing off until the morning it is “due”?!? Continue reading
